Snapdragon 626 Processor

The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 626 processor is engineered to provide even more power and efficiency than its predecessors by using leading-edge 14 nm technology to power premium experiences in high-tier smartphones without draining the battery. Featuring support for full HD (1080p), an integrated X9 LTE modem, Qualcomm® Adreno™ 506 PC-class graphics and Qualcomm® TruSignal™ antenna boost technology, the Snapdragon 626 is designed to provide fast connectivity, vibrant displays and up to 10% higher performance over the Snapdragon 625 processor.

Battery life that keeps on going.

Devices are engineered to require less frequent charging thanks to a low-power Cortex A53 processor and efficiency-boosting features like universal bandwidth compression.

All pixels accounted for.

The Snapdragon 626's dual ISP is designed to support rich detail and optical zoom for photos, and an expansive set of camera features, like gyro image stabilization and enhanced autofocus.

Even more powerful processing.

An integrated Adreno 506 series GPU is designed to deliver unprecedented processing power for dazzling displays.
